I'm trying to use idb with ifort v11 on Mac OS X on a fairly large code. The executable is producing an error not seen on other platforms, so I wanted to look at it with idb. I get the following error stream.
prompt> idb RadHyd
Intel Debugger for applications running on Intel 64, Version 11.0, Build [1.1510.2.69]
object file name: RadHyd
Reading symbols from /Users/Shared/Work/Codes/CHIMERA/trunk/RadHyd/Execute/build1D/RadHyd...
The system open-file limit has been reached.
So the debugger cannot open files it needs to read debug information.
The debugger's understanding of the program will be limited.
Unrecognized binary file format for file /Users/Shared/Work/Codes/CHIMERA/trunk/RadHyd/Execute/build1D/unpack_eos_keys.o
Could not read debugging information from '/Users/Shared/Work/Codes/CHIMERA/trunk/RadHyd/Execute/build1D/unpack_eos_keys.o'.
... and it continues for several pages of files.
Any way around the "system open-file limit"?
idb error: system open-file limit
